Data retrieval via ftp

Data can be obtained from the ftp-server: ftp.bsrn.awi.de. The ftp-server is browser-accessible via e.g. Mozilla. The Internet Explorer may fail. Access via an UNIX ftp-tool is recommended.  The former read account is still valid. New read accounts will be offered to anybody who accepts the Opens internal link in current windowdata release guidelines. Accounts can be obtained from Amelie Driemel.

The ftp-server contains one directory for each BSRN station named according to the event label in the station listing. Within each directory GNU-ziped station-to-archive files are accessible. The files are named XXXMMYY.dat.gz with XXX=event label, MM=Month, YY=Year.

Each file is separated into logical records described in: (see Update of the Technical Plan for BSRN Data Management).In contrast to the ftp-server at the ETH Zürich no derived quantities or quality flags are added.
